What to Know
The Utah State Aggies and the San Diego State Aztecs will face off in a Mountain West clash at 10 p.m. ET Feb. 15 at Viejas Arena at Aztec Bowl. Coming off of a loss in a game they were expected to win, the Aggies nows face the more daunting task of proving themselves against unfavorable odds.
The game between Utah State and the Nevada Wolf Pack this past Friday was not a total blowout, but with Utah State falling 85-72 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. This was hardly the result Utah State or its fans were betting on, as they were favored by 11 points over Nevada heading into this contest. Forward Brandon Horvath put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 29 points in addition to eight rebounds.
Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the matchup between San Diego State and the Air Force Falcons this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as the Aztecs wrapped it up with a 76-64 win at home. San Diego State’s forward Nathan Mensah was one of the most active players for the team, picking up 14 points along with six boards and three blocks.
The Aggies are now 15-11 while San Diego State sits at 15-6. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Utah State comes into the contest boasting the 17th highest field goal percentage in college basketball at 48.40%. But the Aztecs have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 38.10%, which places them 11th in college basketball. We’ll see which of these strengths — offense or defense — will win out.
